Where Did Tanya's Babies Go?
Squatting in mother's house occupying the smallest room in the house and already having other cats, EJ could not keep all of Tanya's babies.
For weeks, armed with cute photos of the kittens, EJ went round asking friends and colleagues to help find a home for the kittens. In the meantime, the kittens were sent for check-up and their health boosted by giving them supplements and multivits.
EJ had to make a decision who to give away. Tortie who was handicapped-born had to be kept as he was still receiving treatment. Besides no one would want a kitten like that.
4head was very close to Tortie and they were always together as you can see here. EJ decided not to separate them.
After Tanya was spayed, when the kittens were eating solids and could care for themselves together with no success in getting them adopted, EJ sent Wig, Rug and EyeShit to SPCA on one Saturday morning.
The lady at the reception was not happy. EJ walked to the back to where all the cats were kept, cleaned an empty cage and put the kittens there. A card prepared earlier with information about the kittens like their date of birth and that they were dewormed, deflea, etc were then hung on the cage door.
After placing a bowl of water and a bowl of cat kibbles in the cage, EJ walked off and out with a lump in the throat.
PS: With Tortie not well, EJ may not be able to post, visit or comment as regularly for the time being.
